Back in June, I posted the great news that Alec Finlay has made the shortlist for this year’s Northern Art Prize, which I attended at the Leeds Art Gallery last night.

A collaboration between the two of us, ‘Apple Wheel’, forms one of his show-pieces.

I also particularly enjoyed ‘Mesostic Remedy, 2008’—Alec is a man after my own heart when it comes to detail and finishing…

It was fantastic to see the print I made for the show—a special one metre wide version—nestled among the other entries and so generously credited to the two of us.

The print, made on Hahnemühle Photo Rag 308gsm with HP’s DJz3200, caught many an eye.

Congratulations once again, Alec, and we look forward to January for the announcement of the winner. Good luck!

The exhibition runs until February, so do make the time to visit if you can…

  1. Finally catching up with UK news from the other side of the world! The print looks beautiful, really stunning – I must pass the link onto Marty at Brogdale Nursery who selected all the apple species! Fingers crossed for Alec!
